Time often seems so fleeting that I wonder if I have even taken a breathe let alone seen 4 weeks go by. Yet in these rare and quiet moments I can remember all those little things that have been successes or failures, the lessons as well as the motivators.
I attended a ride out to escort a young boy who was graduating. There were 18 Bikers all together for a cause. This youngster had lost his mom and his dad was trying to make the day a little more special. It was an amazing yet emotional adventure. Riding behind his car I thought of my Intellectual Thunderstorm and how he would not have this graduation event in his life. I felt honored to be able to share this moment, a mom with a son who would not graduate at the graduation of a son who’s mom was unable to be there.
Yet even though that is the case, I know I am extremely blessed to have him still in my life. Even though he suffers struggles and fears, I get to see him overcome and succeed.
Over the last few months I have witnessed the heartbreaking struggle of an acquaintance who lost her precious child, only 9 Years old. Life is full of moments that put our struggles into perspective. Help us see the silver lining s in our storms.
Its those small silver linings that shine the tendrils of light into those dark days, the strings from above that we can grasp onto and hold tight till the sun peers through and our strength is rewarded.
